A paramedic’s jacket, an NHS tablet computer and sat-nav system were stolen from an ambulance as they responded to an emergency.
Opportunist thieves snuck into the back of the vehicle when it was parked in Priory Road in Faversham as medics helped a patient in need.
When they return to the ambulance, they discovered the items were missing.
The theft took place on Monday between 8.45pm and 9.45pm and police say no arrests are yet to be made.
An ambulance spokesman said: “The incident was reported to police as soon as the ambulance crew were aware and actions were taken to prevent anyone from using the tablet.
“In addition all Trust iPads are encrypted and pin protected and as such not of use to anyone outside the Trust.
“We would urge anyone with any information which may lead to finding the person or persons responsible to contact police.”
Anyone with information should contact police on 01795 419119 quoting XY/023556/17.
Alternatively contact Kent Crimestoppers, anonymously, on 0800 555111.
